Show Notes for Thursday, July 9, 2020


Dear John,

By the time you get to this, we will probably already have made a decision, but I still think it's worth sending the letter. We were out of town for the weekend and we came home to a bunch of party cups, empty cans and fireworks all over our lawn. I'm not a fuddy duddy, but I don't think I should have to clean up after my neighbors either. We share a property line and that' about it. We've always been kind to them, but they've typically been pretty rude in return. I'm not sure what we ever did to deserve this, but they've gotten progressively worse over the last few years. I think we're going to call the police this time. They literally dumped garbage on our lawn. My husband is giving them the benefit of the doubt and said “maybe a garbage can fell over”. Even if that's what happened, why would you leave the trash for me to pick up? I'd love to throw it back on their lawn. What do you think we should do?

Signed – Unhappy Neighbor

McRib sandwiches contain about 70 ingredients. The McDonald's McRib is a popular choice for fast-food lovers, but those who indulge in the saucy sandwiches might want to be aware of the fact that they're made with a lengthy list of ingredients. According to Time, the McRib contains 70 ingredients, 34 of which are in the bun alone. And while you might assume that these ingredients are spices or other natural food-related flavors, anyone who eats one of these sandwiches will also be ingesting azodicarbonamide, a flour-bleaching agent used in the production of foamed plastics for things like gym mats and the soles of shoes.

Federal prosecutors said that a Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to illegally importing and exporting turtles and salamanders in violation of federal law and international agreements. According to a statement Tuesday from the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston, 27-year-old Nathan Boss of Worcester pleaded guilty to smuggling wildlife out of the U.S., smuggling wildlife into the U.S., and lying to federal investigators. During an investigation that started 2017, authorities intercepted a package from Hong Kong intended for Boss that contained four black-breasted leaf turtles, which are an endangered species that cannot be imported unless approved by the federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Boss also imported a species of salamander that can carry a fungal disease and is prohibited from importation into the U.S. Boss faces up to 20 years in prison at sentencing scheduled for Sept. 24th.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

According to a report, a Nigerian Instagram star who boasted online about his lavish lifestyle of private jets, designer clothes, and luxury cars has been busted in a $431 million cyber scam. Raymond Abbas, known as Hushpuppi to his 2.4 million followers, was nabbed earlier this month in Dubai for an alleged scheme that involved ripping off credit card information overseas. Investigators said 38-year-old Abbas, who passed himself off as a wealthy real estate developer, flaunted his collections of luxury cars, shoes, watches and other goods to help “lure victims from all over the world.” He and at least a dozen other associates were busted in the international operation, code-named Fox Hunt 2, after detectives used their social media to track their locations. During the raids, investigators uncovered email addresses of nearly two million victims on dozens of phones, computers, and hard drives. (
